muffins from leftovers

I made myself some nice juice this morning, from a quarter of a pineapple, a couple of carrots and apples, a stalk of celery, and a little ginger and lime.

I always feel kind of bad about throwing away all that pulp left over from juicing, though, so I made health muffins with it. The only trouble with this is having to prepare your juice ingredients a little more thoroughly--you'd have to cut the prickles off your nopales, for instance.

Pulpy Muffins

2C (250g) spelt flour
1t baking powder
1/2t baking soda
1/2t salt (Annie thought these were undersalted, so if you like your muffins salty add a little more)
1t powdered ginger (maybe next time I'll add some nutmeg or cinnamon)
1 1/3C juice pulp (that's the amount I got from the above juice)
3/4C soy milk
1/4C oil
1/3C maple syrup
1/2C raisins (I'll add some nuts next time)

Heat oven to 425ºF. Whisk dry ingredients together, then add wet ingredients and mix till everything's wet. Stir in raisins. Divide dough up among 12 muffin cups. Bake for about 18 minutes.
